Private primary care centres show higher management quality


Using the World Management Survey method the researchers analyse management quality in Swedish primary care centres. On average private providers have higher management quality than public ones. Centres with a high overall social deprivation among enrolled patients tend to have higher management quality. Regarding quality of care  the researchers find that management quality is positively associated with accessibility, but not with patient reported experience.
